Kelly in London today to support McBride election campaign

17 September, 2003

Sinn Féin North Belfast representative Gerry Kelly is travelling to London today, Wednesday 17th September to support Westminster by-election campaign of Kelly McBride, the sister of murdered north Belfast teenage of two Peter McBride who was killed by Scots Guards Fisher and Wright.

Speaking ahead of travelling to London Mr Kelly said:

"The McBride family have fought a long, determined and dignified campaign to get justice for Peter McBride.

"Sinn Féin support their campaign for justice. Sinn Féin support the McBride family's campaign for justice and we will offer whatever help we can in support of Kelly McBride's election campaign.

"Sinn Féin supports this initiative. It provides the McBride family with an opportunity to raise their demand that the two Scots Guards convicted of murdering Peter McBride should be removed from the British Army." ENDS
